Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) in Marketing Management

Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) in Marketing Management

SAQA ID: 118283

Marketing starts with the question: What does the customer want? To enable a company to supply a sought after product or service, the marketer needs to manage a dynamic environment, where various aspects such as business and marketing principles, research, finance, branding and communication needs to be considered holistically. The objective of this process is to create synergy, where the whole is greater than the simple sum of its parts – where the products or services delivered not only satisfies customer needs and wants, but that, at the end of the day, it adds value not only to the bottom line of the company, but also to the industry, environment and community within which the company operates.

Marketing will never go ‘out of fashion’ – there will always be consumers with wants and needs. It is an exciting and challenging environment where the only constant is change. The IMM BBA in Marketing Management degree will provide students with the variety of skills and knowledge required to have a holistic view of marketing and its various touchpoints – both within in the company and externally in the market.
